This week we will continue learning about our abc. We will be working on recognizing the letters with their sound, letter formation, vocabulary of the letter, remember always emphasizing on the short vowel sounds. This week we will be studying about the letter Mm. The vocabulary for this letter is: mop, mouse, money, mud, monkey, mushroom, mask, moon, microphone, map, markers, magnet.

Child assigned should take at least five (5) items that they have at home that begin with this letter. Items should be at school on Monday and we will send them back on Friday. For this week we have Madison Davis 

***Note: On Friday, the assigned student, will have to share eatable things for 19 friends such as marshmallows, mandarins, mango, macaroni and cheese, milk, mint candies, mozzarella sticks, M&M, muffins, etc. for children to taste. We do this to close our letter unit. Thank you for your support!!

The following link you will find a PowerPoint presentation with the vocabulary, in case you would like to review at home with your child.

We are attaching links of some of Letter Mm videos if you would like to listen and sing at home with your kid:

We would like your support on occasionally review the ABC’s letter names and sound. Here are some songs we use in class every day.



Some of the stories we will be reading this week are:

If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff The consequences of giving a cookie to this energetic mouse run the young host ragged, but young readers will come away smiling at the antics that tumble like dominoes through the pages of this delightful picture book.

The Mitten by Jan Brett One by one, woodland animals find it and crawl in; first, a curious mole, then a rabbit, a badger and others, each one larger than the last. Finally, a big brown bear is followed in by a tiny brown mouse and what happens next makes for a wonderfully funny climax.

In math, will be working with numbers. We will review numbers 0-10 on how to represent and recognize numbers using tally marks, ten frames, number formation, name of the number, one-to-one correspondence, and sequencing.

We would like your support on occasionally review counting and numbers. Here are some songs we use in class every day:

Little Monkeys
